big will, i agree, so go wth a gmc like i did. traded 99 1500, ext cab 4wd, w/ 90k for an 05, 2500hd; night & day between the two. of course, the 2500hd is likes more gas, but it can handle a snow plow w/out voiding the warranty.

Saab is a GM company ... Volvo is Ford. And yes, trying to keep all this straight is hard even when one is in the auto biz ...

Just because it's owned by them doesn't necessarily mean it's included. I doubt that Ford is including Aston Martin in the deal. If they are, I'm going out and getting a nice big loan...

Aston Martin? Heck, if that's included, count me in for a Vanquish.

Oh yeah.... I don't think the Big 3 own any one more exclusive than that, except Maybach. Frankly, I don't need a boat.

hey pmb, the wife's Maxima has 60K on it. The CPU registered an ignition problem, but it was intermittent. They replaced the coils (it apparently has separate ignition coils for each cylinder) and changed the belt (I know, I know). Regardless, I didn't want the wife and baby cruising in a faulty vehicle, y'know?
I still like the Maxima - it hasn't left us stranded anywhere - but in my experience with Japanese vehicles of all kinds, I have no more confidence in them than American vehicles.

oh yeah, and the front wheel drive apparently causes increased problems with the axle. If the little protective boots get torn or knocked off, the axle apparently gets damaged pretty quickly. The guys in the paper say keep driving it, though - at least until the noise is too annoying to tolerate.
